Warner Robins sees rising theft of specific car part

Warner Robins police say theft of catalytic converters is becoming a big problem. A catalytic converter is a part of your vehicles admission system, and it's been an ongoing problem with people stealing them. Business Owner Linda Lombardi has had two stolen off of her trucks outside her furniture store. The most recent theft happened just a few weeks ago. Lombardi is the manager of Phillip's Furniture on Watson Boulevard, and she says one of her delivery trucks is still in the repair shop after having its converter stolen. All vehicles have a converter, except for all-electric cars. Now, what exactly is a converter for? He says converters are a target because they contain three expensive metals in them, and their value is on the rise. Those metals are rhodium, platinum and palladium. Sinniard says when a vehicle's converter is stolen, it can cost thousands to get a new one installed. Also, your car may fail an emissions test.
